"In episodic fashion, with a large measure of wit, he examines the important actions and decisions of Harvard's leadership from Puritan times to the present, and provides lively details of its college life since 1636. There was no guarantee that Harvard would become a great university. But the commitment to veritas compelled the institution to change in the face of new knowledge or cease to be. Mr. Schlesinger's book is about how Harvard changed."--BOOK JACKET."
